Like all yoga, Surya Namaskara or sun salutation is a whole-body exercise. A full cycle which includes the 12 aasanas of surya namaskara, tasks and consolidates pretty much every muscle, connecting tissue and bone, in the body.
Traditionally, it has been accomplished in the morning, lining the rising sun.

Due to its nature as a muscle-stretching exercise, it is an ideal way to accelerate recovery from earlier exercise sessions. It can be accomplished as a stretching routine after weight-bearing exercises. But this is also a weight-bearing exercise in itself, it should preferably be carried out on its own, or more static stretches should be added after it. Continue reading
